FOX 47 launches new text message alerts

Rochester, Minn. (FOX 47) -- We know life is busy and there may not always be a television or computer around for the latest news and weather information.

FOX 47 has launched a new text messaging service, aimed at keeping viewers informed no matter where they are.

Daily forecasts will go out at 7 a.m. Monday - Friday with a look at what to expect as you get ready for work or school.  Weekend forecasts will be sent at 9 a.m.  Severe weather alerts are also available by county to warn you of potentially dangerous weather in your area. And school closings will be available by district. Other alerts include programming changes, contests and special offers.
